2018 Fantasy Outlook
After catching 17 passes for 200 yards in his rookies season in 2016, Core was held without a catch last season, though he received over 200 snaps on special teams. The release of Brandon LaFell opens up a spot in the receiving rotation, though Core will be hard pressed to work his way into that rotation even still. He's clearly behind A.J. Green, Tyler Boyd and John Ross, and he's likely also chasing Josh Malone. That leaves him fighting for a roster spot, with two likely coming between him, Alex Erickson and Auden Tate.

Leaves with left elbow injury
WRCincinnati Bengals
Elbow
December 30, 2018
Core left Sunday's Week 17 game against the Steelers with what appeared to be a dislocated left elbow.
ANALYSIS
It looked as if the Bengals' medical staff had to pop Core's elbow back into place right on the field and place the left arm in an air cast even before he left for the locker room. The Bengals have run out of healthy receivers to finish the season. They'll finish out this game with John Ross, Alex Erickson, Auden Tate and Josh Malone.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2017
2016
Core had a decent season for a sixth-round rookie in 2016, finishing the year with 17 catches for 200 yards in just eight games. He was inactive for much of the season but came on late, totaling all of his production in December. Unfortunately for Core, the addition of John Ross in the 2017 draft likely relegates him to the No. 5 wideout slot. Core will figure to see the field for more than just eight games in 2017, but he won't likely see regular action unless a swath of injuries strikes the Bengals' receiving corps.
Core was drafted in the sixth round with the 199th overall pick of the draft. While Core put together a solid campaign as the No. 2 wideout at Ole Miss, he'll likely find himself fighting for a depth spot in the Bengals' receiving corps. He'll compete with James Wright, Brandon Tate and second-round pick Tyler Boyd for reps behind established wideouts A.J. Green and Brandon LaFell. The Bengals are the thinnest they've been at wide receiver in recent years, meaning Core could get his opportunity at some point during the season.
